Universal swimming prosthesis strengthens amputated leg

Summary: For people with an amputated leg, it is important that the muscles and stump are strong. When swimming during rehabilitation, however, it turned out that they hardly moved the stump. In order to make better use of the affected leg and to strengthen the muscles, Libra R&A’s movement specialist, Peter Verhoeven, developed the universal swimming flipper together with Livit.
